All Hallows' Eve Celebration
Saturday, October 23 | 11 am – 12:30 pm
OCTOBER 17th, 10:15 AM
St. Ambrose will celebrate our 153rd anniversary Sunday, October 17 with an outside, in-person worship under water oak trees at the church with service at 10:15 am. There will not be an 8 am worship service. Come and celebrate the wonderful works God is doing in the life of our church!
Saint Ambrose Episcopal Church is a welcoming community that gives worship to God, receives wisdom from God, and works alongside God to move the city of Raleigh.
Worship. Wisdom. Work.
We believe we exist to worship God and intentionally equip our congregation to give God praise.
WORSHIP WITH US
Our wisdom comes from God and our church built on the legacy of African and African American Episcopal saints.
Our patron saint, Bishop Ambrose of Milan, lived in Italy during the 300s C.E. According to tradition, bees landed on his face as a child, leaving honey on his lips. He was a gifted orator, earning him the name “the honeyed tongue preacher.” The bees and the beehive are historic symbols of Saint Ambrose.
We have two worship services each Sunday; 8 and 10:15am. We also have Bible studies on Mondays at 12:15pm and Tuesday mornings at 9:30 as well as a mid-week mass on Wednesdays at 12:15pm.

As a historically African American Episcopal Church, we have a diverse congregation of all ages. We are radically welcoming, infinitely supportive and intentionally focused on transforming our communities, big and small, through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
